Having always wanted a hedgehog and after living here for nearly six years I have now acquired 4! Mum and 3 little ‘uns. I spotted mum a few weeks ago and realised that she was living under my shed. I have no idea how she got there but she seems to be happy and has blessed me with her 3 babies. I have no idea how you determine the gender from a distance! I am now feeding my hogs every evening with hedgehog food and dog food and find myself sitting out for hours just watching them.
Can you tell me if they will stay as a family or should I expect to see them disappearing?
